Pharmacy Education Opportunities
Whether you are a pharmacy owner, staff pharmacist, or pharmacy technician, NCPA can help you meet your continuing education requirements through a mix of live and online CE activities.
NCPA Innovation Center/ CPESN Community Pharmacy Fellowship
The NCPA Innovation Center/ CPESN Community Pharmacy Fellowship is an intensive 12-month training program open to all practicing pharmacists working at a CPESN® USA pharmacy. CPESN pharmacies can specifically hire a fellow or enroll a current employee in the fellowship. The fellows would participate in regular discussion groups with their co-fellows, as well as, educational webinars on core topics led by a centralized faculty including luminaries and ACT faculty that instruct them how to implement clinical services.
Thinking Outside the Vial
Launching mid-August of 2020, this six-part series will dive into how you can address some of the most common disease states with tactics beyond medications. Functional medicine pharmacists and thought leaders, Lara Zakaria and Suzanne Keyes, will lead you through top disease states and how you can address them with a biological, systems-based approach.
Community Pharmacy Start-Up Benchmarking Report
Start-up pharmacies have traditionally had limited ability to evaluate their performance versus other new pharmacies in their first five years of business. For the third year, NCPA has addressed this gap in benchmarking data by producing the 2020 Community Pharmacy Start-up Benchmarking Report, sponsored by CPA.

Functional Medicine: A to Zinc
Functional medicine focuses on the root cause of a problem instead of addressing the problem's symptoms. The practice of functional medicine can evaluate endocrine diseases, sleep management, weight management, stress, and more. There are multiple opportunities for incorporating facets of functional medicine into your practice.
In this program, you will learn about the concept of functional medicine, explain the success of a weight management program, and discuss the importance of scheduling appointments in your pharmacy.
